Just as modern Charismatics seek to justify the reality of their experiences by
appealing to Acts 2, so the validity of the experience of Acts 2 itself needs
justification from Old Testament parallels. A neglected passage in this regard is
Numbers 11, where the elders of Israel were given from the spirit that was on
Moses, and then prophesied. This story can function as a legitimation of the story of
Acts 2, and can then throw light on its meaning. The modern claims of the receipt of
the Spirit may then be tested against the features of both passages.
